Bigger than Your Dreams
Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think—according to the power that works in you—to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.–Ephesians 3:20-21
Every year I look at the schedule during the pre-season and start to calculate wins and losses. We can beat them . . . We’ll probably lose there . . . This one is a toss-up . . . We’d better beat them! I’m sure all of us lie in bed at night and dream about championships and MVP awards. What’s exciting to me is that God can do immeasurably more than even those things.
In Ephesians 3:20, Paul wrote, “Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think—according to the power that works in you.” How much can we ask or imagine? How big are our dreams? No matter the dream, God’s reality is even bigger!
Could it be that God’s plans for us are greater than we could possibly dream? Absolutely. The text states He is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. That’s how great God’s power is in our lives. He is at work in ways our simple minds can’t even fathom. His reality is even bigger than our dreams.
Today, let the confidence that comes from security make us the players we’ve always dreamed of being. Let’s step into the reality of God’s plans and find life that eclipses our wildest dreams.
1. What dreams do you have for yourself?
2. What limits do you place on yourself in those dreams?
Romans 9:17; 1 Corinthians 4:20; Ephesians 1:18-20
Father, thank You for each and every dream that You have given me. Help me to trust in Your power and will for my life. Amen
